“An inspiring story of a man who endured a painful, abusive childhood and the obstacles he overcame to save hot only his past, but also his marriage. Something better is a story of hope. The reader will experience the hurt and pain that reaches beyond the physical for any person that has suffered abuse. How Tom dealt with the lasting effects of such violence and the way he came to the realization that forgiveness gave him freedom. I immediately felt I could relate to Tom and his situation. The character was written so clearly and very realistic. I especially like reading his side of the story of his marriage issues and how he attempted to mend the rift in his marriage.” -5 star Amazon Review


“If not for the fact that God really does make these kinds of turn-arounds happen in the lives of real people, you might find the happy ending hard to believe. The author draws out the complexity of real issues of life that can bring marriage to a point of devastation. Better yet, he shows how life in Christ can turn around the worst of circumstances and restore hope. Even though life is not ideal, a book with a happy ending remains refreshing!” -5 Star Amazon Review
